hubiestubert: I am more and more convinced that North Korea is really hoping for war, so that they can get rebuilt by the West. It takes them out of the Chinese pocket, it keeps the Russians out of their hair, and afterwards, Little Kim can be one of the cool kids at the UN table. At least one of the ones who got out of the dictator for life game, and retires someplace warm, with a lot of security paid for on someone else's dime...


If it hits the fan, Fatty the Third can expect to be in front of the Hague for Crimes against Humanity.

All assuming they don't find little bits of him scattered around a crater made from a Predator-launched Hellfire, of course.

rikkitikkitavi: Korean is actually called Hangungmal, and "Taepo Dong" is literally "watery place". Dong is 'place' used commonly as we use -town on the end of place names.


Thanks.  As a world citizen with an interest in expanding my knowledge, I thank you.  However, as a Farker, I shall now continue making dong jokes.

/srsly, thanks.

Sword and Shield: digistil: Germany's reportedly allied itself with Japan, backing them up if BK so much as skeets in their direction.

It's just like old times.

North Korea farking up would be a world-unifier the likes of which has never been seen.

The US, Russians, Germans, even the Chinese would be backing Japan. You'd have NATO and the old Eastern Bloc all coming to play to curb stomp North Korea.

There would be nothing left around the 38th parallel.

As a Canadian stuck in the frozen north, I dream of moving to Hawaii. I've looked at jobs there a few times, but it's hard for a Canadian to get hired...at least in government work.

/sigh
//threadjack

Either Maui or Kailua Kona on the Big Island.  Not interested in the bustle of Honolulu, even though I am in SoCal, so the bustle would still seem tame by comparison.  Looking to slow down and enjoy life.


Not sure they have missles which could reach here from there.

Why only government work?  Kauai is beautiful.  Eastside of Oahu is not like Honolulu, but is more expensiveas far as housing goes.

Has any NK missile test actually hit the target it was aimed at? IIRC our first generation ICBM's were very inaccurate. If they actually fire a missile at Guam or Hawaii I'm not so sure they could hit the island.

IF best Korea makes us nuke them I hope we use Manned Strategic Bombers rather than ICBMs or SLCMs just so the CHICOMs or Rooskies dont have thier early warning systems go full retard and think we are launching at them.

The North Section of Korea was considered the wealthy part prior to the split.  It was all heavy industry becasue that was where the mineral wealth of the region was.

Southern Korea only had agriculture when the country split.

netcentric: Fark France: ".....Along with some weird little floating radar buoy box we put out in the Pacific."


Maybe the US has the Sea-Based radar positioned.   It left Pearl Harbor in early April,  but I wish someone would link to something official saying it is operating.     Actually in position.    So far everything I see is that it is 'on the way'   or  'being moved'.      It is not fast.

BMD is not cut and dried for the US or Japan.         For an IRBM,  sm-3 / PAC3 is not optimal.     My opinion is that it can do the job at a decent % rate.     But it is far from perfect.   (It's far better with the XBAND in place).

The US is very advanced in technology, as is Japan's military (they also have sm-3 / PAC3)..... but there really is nobody in the world who can demonstrate the ability to hit IRBM's at will at a high rate of accuracy.


If it would ever happen,  I think all sides will be wondering how it ends up.   ????
It's anybody guess.


That's what it is. X-Band. I remembered it as that weird looking ball deal. Here's a news story that says we've moved it.

In the highly unlikely event of things going that far, you can be pretty sure that the other ICBM capable countries would get a heads up prior to launch.

[SNIP Interesting stuff]

Whatever's going on in NK, it's managed to put China on the same side as Japan.
No matter what else goes down, 'that' deserves to be noticed and remarked upon.


Well, Saddam Hussein managed to unite the USSR and the USA (though, to be fair, this was post-Soviet Russia).

But, yeah:  when you put it that way, the uniting of two age-old mortal enemies is a mark of how crazy dangerous

That is actually a very intelligent statement because IRL preemptive or counter strikes by opposing force is done at the moment of launch and not after the weapon has landed.

During the first couple hundreds miles of missile launch, it's trajectory at that time is still impossible to accurately predict where it would land other than just the general area.

If we launch at NK, there is NO WAY China or Russia can tell where the missile would land other than knowing it is headed in that general direction especially before MIRVs released and for sure they will send retaliatory missile strikes on the continental US. Also unlike NK, theirs can actually reach our cities..

No problem.  I mean.... if for some reason they attacked China, they STILL don't hit fab (which is practically ALL done at TSMC) they only set back manf for like 6 months until they rebuild in a new place.  How on earth would NK bombing China set back Tech 20-30 years?

The point of broadcasting our movements is very much counter to DPRK's rhetoric. It's our way of tangibly countering every blustery threat they make.

There's also a bunch of moves we -aren't- broadcasting, too (like B-1 and B-2 rebasings)
 
2013-04-09 04:00:01 PM  

nekom: Given that they have actively THREATENED nuclear war, Japan has absolutely every right to shoot down any missile coming from there.  I rather doubt Japan would do anything else, but they certainly have made it clear that they absolutely do intend to do so.  Patriot missile batteries deployed in Tokyo.  They have to protect their own population, any nation would do the same.


I'd think, though I might be wrong, that putting them somewhere in Hokkaido might be better than somewhere in Tokyo. Though they might do even more better if they simply dropped several tons of nekomimi and shoujo pantsu on Pyongyang. Follow that up with a rain of Pocky and blast some J-Pop at them. They would either convert, go crazy, or both.

The greatest deterrent that North Korea has is itself. No one really wants to win against them because that would mean you get possession of a shiathole country that needs a ton of rebuilding work... and that's even before you consider the war damage. I doubt that even South Korea would want it even if it meant unification, the necessary resources would likely bankrupt them. The only real hope is a coup that puts in semi-coherent leadership that moves the country in a saner and more democratic direction. If that happened, a number of countries would likely help them thru several UN assistance programs.

But all that is moot as long as the Kim family remains in charge.
